"Just an okay read. I did finish, but this book could have been 100 pages shorter. I did enjoy the character development of the main character and her mother somewhat. I don't think I'd recommend this to my fellow book-loving friends."
"I loved, loved this book. Beautiful, rich, lyrical prose. A mystery, a coming-of-age book. Wonderful story, interesting characters. The end fell just a touch short, but so enjoyed this, I immersed myself in it."
